Re: [DML] Rob Grady's Personal Lower Suspension

I recommend Farm Bureau Insurance. When a pine tree dropped a limb on my windshield, they replaced it free of charge without even visually inspecting the car -- the whole transaction was handled over the phone.

What do you think his insurance company would have to say about his car if the engine caught fire and they figured out he removed all of the original fuel system and put a carburetor on? In my experience they rarely figure that kind of thing out but they are getting smarter about that kind of stuff. Before paying out they may require you fill out a questionnaire and among the questions is what modifications have been done to the car. Lie and get caught and that is insurance fraud. As for modifying the front suspension, although it may be a "kit" and has been available for a long time, it would still be considered "experimental" and custom, certainly not stock. To my knowledge there has been no engineering study or testing to prove out that it is safe under all conditions (or at least as safe as the stock set-up). Under extreme driving conditions, high speed, or panic stops for instance, no one knows how it handles. For the "masses" it is an expensive thing with little to no benefit. Upgrading the suspension is only necessary if you increase the HP and braking systems and run the car a lot harder than most would do for street driving. For what the Delorean was designed for, the front suspension is adequate as long as it is kept in good repair. Not every change is an "upgrade". Use Bill's carburetor as an example.
